I have talked about this scope a little bit in a number of different threads. I have also posted some random pictures here and there.
I am a birder who frequently takes others out to see birds, and I do not have unlimited resources to support my birding and photography. After reading the reviews here and at other online sites, I decided to go with the Vortex Razor HD scope.
Bought from OP in December 2015 after a three-year search and comparison. As a frequent birder, all the way want a no-fancy spotting scope of 80-82mm diameter yet not too pricey. Compared brands commonly used by fellow Hong Kong birders, those typically from Japan, Austria, Germany etc, with prices...
vortex VIP warranty, Very compact at 39cm long, Strong body, Nice protective jacket included
Quite heavy with caps on (>1.8kg), Eyepiece rather tight to fix on, Magnification ring adjusts loosely
I've had my Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 angled spotting scope for a few months already and cannot be more pleased with the quality and ease of use. First, the optics are brite, clear, super resolution, bringing distant birds into sharp focus.
I was torn between buying this scope and the Celestron 100mm FD Regal so I bought both. The Vortex has been highly regarded and cost more than 2 times the price of the Celestron so I was expecting its performance to be significantly better than the Vortex.In a nutshell I was extremely disappointed...
Poor Focus Past 30x
Beyond optical brilliance, the Razor HD's functionality is beyond reproach. The included zoom eyepiece yields 20-60x magnification with an impressive apparent field of view at higher powers. Dual-ratio focusing, favored on many of the best, gets you roughly where you want in a jiffy and allows especially-refined fine tuning capacity. A side-mounted, removable peepsight helps get subjects in the scope's view, and the body's magnesium alloy construction, ArmorTek water & oil repelling coating on the eyepiece and objective, and argon purging keep it fully operational in all conditions for years to come.
The Razor HD makes for a great digiscoping base, and is backed by a direct, unconditional warranty: if it breaks or if you break it, they'll fix it, and if you should sell your scope secondhand, they'll do the same for the new owner. There is no time limit on this promise.
